All of it. We are great at what we do, and by teaming up with the best from other industries, we’ll get the packaging producers going, and they can provide much-needed, sustainable packaging alternatives to the market. Everyone wins when we collaborate, and the environment wins the most.”
Huarong Group has built injection molding machines for over 40 years, putting them in a position as one of Taiwan’s more renowned machine manufacturers.
